National Banana Split Day
You can get a banana split anywhere but the one at Sweet Republic wins my vote for Best banana split in the valley. Technically it’s not a traditional banana split but it has bananas in it so I think it counts! Here’s the scoop, and when I mean scoop- I literally mean SCOOP!
TOFFEE BANOFI SUNDAE: 2 scoops Madagascar Vanilla, almond toffee brittle, fresh bananas, salted caramel sauce & whip cream in waffle bowl

Take Your Dog to Lunch for National Dog Day- Saturday August 26
OHSO Brewery & Distillery
Head on over to the best dog patio in Scottsdale (and Phoenix!) All three locations have a patio with water fountain, play area and even fido friendly leash clips on tables. Homemade dog treats give a whole new meaning to a doggy bag. Spend time at OHSO’s weekend beer brunch that includes one of my favorite mimosas.
